ARBITRATION

When the pre-trial dispute settlement procedure is unsuccessful and the case is referred to the arbitration court, the company will need the help of experienced lawyers who specialise in litigation.

What cases are subject to arbitration?

Arbitration courts settle economic and other disputes involving companies and individual entrepreneurs. In particular, arbitration courts deal with:

  • Disputes arising from violations of contract terms;
  • Tax disputes;
  • Corporate disputes;
  • Disputes related to deals concluded between business entities;
  • Deprivation/recognition of property rights;
  • Protection of the business reputation of a business entity;
  • Refusal of state registration, reorganisation and liquidation of business entities;
  • Insolvency (bankruptcy);
  • Other disputes arising from the economic and entrepreneurial activities of business entities and individual entrepreneurs. 

The lawyer who represents the company’s interests in court must not only possess an excellent knowledge of the law, but also knowledge of court practice on the contentious issue.
